Hi,

i use Actipro RibbonWindow as a MainWindow in my Application. By checking of all opened windows with Application.Current.Windows i found a window with the title "ActiproWindowChromeShadow" among other. What is that and what purpose has that object? I want to close all opened windows when a user is inactive for long time.

Regards

Hi John,

That is the outer glow effect for a window that has a WindowChrome applied (like RibbonWindow does) when in a Metro theme.  It watches the owner window and auto-closes when the owner window closes.  So in your case, it will close when you close the RibbonWindow.

Hello,

It shouldn't really conflict with any UI since it's always updated to be behind the Window it's attached to in terms of z-order.  You could use a different theme other than a Metro theme when running UI tests if it's causing problems.  No other themes use it.
